The small investors an endangered species…

Good evening, Netizens…


Two days in succession David Horsey took his freshly-sharpened pencil to the sharks that run Wall Street, and in both instances, he hit his target dead-on. Of course, this might not be as popular an opinion with certain die-hard Republican mouthpieces, because they are, in my opinion, increasingly desperate to blame the current economic woes on Obama. Besides, do they really care about the small investor? I haven’t seen any proof of that in decades.


Can we even define the small investors? I submit these Americans are not really a metaphor, but simply an endangered species left to their own devices for how to bail out the super-wealthy. All I have to consider is the ungodly amount of money some of these bankers were making when the system, which they helped create and sustain, suddenly began shredding itself. All I have to do is consider the number of high-ranking CEO’s and other corporate sharks swimming in the financial water still looking for free hand-outs.


It seems so funny that David Horsey took on our economy two days in succession and each time he takes the same dismal view that many average income-earners have had for a long time.
